The legacy of Cabezón: The Iberian organ tiento

This series took place onFrom to

The tiento was the most popular keyboard genre in the Iberian Peninsula from its origins to the mid-sixteenth century. Only the progressive implementation of the toccata and the sonata were able to cause the definitive disappearance of the tiento at the beginning of the eighteenth century. This series presents a journey through the evolution of the genre divided into three chronological and geographical itineraries: its Renaissance beginnings, the Aragonese and Mediterranean school and the Andalusian development. These imagined journeys always begin with the works of Antonio de Cabezón and include examples by composers from Portugal, where the tiento enjoyed equal popularity.
